Running marathons is something very special within the world of running. The distance for a marathon is 26 miles and 385 yards-- it is long enough to be a challenge to anyone. Even for those who have completed many marathons, there is really no guarantee of what will transpire in the race itself. The outcome is never completely certain. Even on the days when we "just know" that we will finish, we cannot be sure of what will happen during the race and what our final time will be.

The links from this page will deal specifically with issues of "The Marathon" and will provide some ideas of how to to deal with the challenge of the marathon both mentally and physically. Some are serious and some are light-hearted. Each one is worth a look.
